Kindle, 6" E Ink Display

I just bought Greg's Diary for my son and was disappointed because it is way to small to read.
Since it is a Kindle Text Pop-Up enabled book, the Font Size menu is disabled :-(
There is a zoom function but with hardcoded values much to big, or "fill display" with does not fill the display.

Using Kindle Text Pop-Up is no solution, because it jumps to really every text box, like the page number :-(

Is there a way to transform the book to a normal kindle book. Or to zoom using custom value, or ... any other idea

What is Greg's Diary? I'm unable to find that in the Kindle Store. Can you provide a link?

What is a text pop up book?

Ah! Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Got it.

I sent a sample to my Paperwhite, and I see what you mean. Unfortunately, no, the font is not customizable, since the book is "written" and is more like drawings than formattable text.

Sorry.

You could try downloading and installing the Kindle app on your laptop or PC. Register it to the same Amazon account and download the book to it. It should work properly.

I wonder why they don't limit the devices for the book if it doesn't work on e-ink.............

M.Francis is right -- I opened the "Look Inside" on my pc, and the book renders wonderfully. If you have Kindle for PC, it would work on there, too.

Thank you for your hint

Not on the Paperwhite, no. The usual "font" function is grayed out/not usable.
